Updates to Application

  • On November 30, 2023, FDA filed for scientific review modified risk tobacco product (MRTP) application renewals submitted by Swedish Match USA for the General Snus products. The original MRTP orders are valid for a term of 5 years from the date of issuance. To continue marketing an MRTP after the term of an order, the company may submit an MRTP renewal application for FDA to determine that the product still satisfies the requirements in section 911. Renewal applications may cross-reference an applicant’s original MRTP as well as postmarket annual reports submitted in accordance with marketing order requirements for both the premarket tobacco application (PMTA) and MRTP. Annual reports for MRTPs contain the cumulative results from the postmarket surveillance and studies that all companies are required to conduct as part of a modified risk granted order.
  • On June 26, 2024, FDA held a TPSAC meeting to discuss these renewal applications.
  • On July 3, 2024, FDA reposted the following files:
  • On July 15, 2024, FDA reposted Annual Reports Part 8.

Public comments on these applications must be submitted to docket FDA-2014-N-1051-0941 on regulations.gov by 11:59 pm ET on Aug. 14, 2024 to ensure they receive consideration by FDA. See the Modified Risk Orders webpage for order letters and decision summaries relevant to these actions.
